About the Author
While Jen Ferruggia may not be an immediately recognizable name to most, she is well known throughout the fitness world. Primarily working as a health coach more recently, she is also an athlete and a model. With such extensive experience in the fitness world, both as an athlete learning what works in terms of fitness and exercise, as well as a health coach learning the science and theories behind healthy living, it’s safe to assume the theory and ideology behind the Bikini Body Workouts is sound.
The Basic Theory
The thought process behind Bikini Body Workouts is making an overall shift in lifestyle, rather than focusing on compartmentalized ideas that play into weight loss. So anyone who hates the idea of endless cardio session and counting every carb and calorie you put in your body, don’t worry there’s none of that here. The Bikini Body Workouts Program takes a broad-spectrum approach to weight loss and fitness. Through a combination of targeted workouts that actually focus on blasting those pesky pockets of fat the just never seem to go away, a nutritional plan that lets you eat what you love but focuses on balanced meals and moderation rather than starvation, and lastly a supplement plan to help get essential nutrients that your normal diet might not provide, you’ll be able to slim down and tone those muscles before you know it.
So What’s Included?
The Bikini Body Workouts Program comes with a ton of resources that will help you get the beach body you’ve always wanted. These resources cover everything from the workouts themselves, to diet plans and shopping lists. It gives you everything you need to make the Bikini Body Workouts a part of your daily lifestyle. More specifically, it comes with the following:
-Bikini Body Online Instructional Exercise Videos
These videos are the core of the program, showing you exactly how to do each of the exercises and demonstrating the best way to burn all that extra fat that just wont leave. The key to how these exercises work is that they are all targeted exercises. Instead of just endlessly running on the treadmill or using the stair master to get a slow burn, these workouts are specifically designed to target specific areas of your body. While cardio is great for getting your heart rate up and using up your body’s sugar reserves for energy so it can start breaking down the fat, it’s terrible at actually burning off the fat. That’s where these targeted exercises come in. Through targeting specific body part, these exercises not only burn fat by pushing your body to the limit, it also builds the underlying muscle, giving you that toned physique once the fat has been burned away. Each day in the program focuses on a particular set of exercises which target different parts of your body.
- Monday is triceps, chest and shoulders.
- Tuesday is glutes and quads.
- Wednesday is optional high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and your abs.
- Thursday is biceps and back.
- Friday is hamstrings and calves.
- Saturday is a 10 minute HIIT session and some more abs.
- Sunday is a day to rest and recover before starting up the next cycle.
-Bikini Body Workout Guide
This guide goes hand in hand with the videos, giving you written detailed instructions on how to perform each exercise, proper form, and the benefits of each exercise. This digital guide covers some more of the minute details that you might miss when following the videos, or works as a great replacement on days you can’t properly watch the videos while exercising. It also breaks down each set, rep and rest period, and the balance between the three.
-Bikini Body Nutrition Guide
The Bikini Body Nutrition Guide covers the dietary part of the program. Rather than using calorie counting to essentially starve you into shape, the guide outlines proper eating habits and what to eat when. You’ll still be able to eat food that you love, but the guide focuses on proper timing for eating, what meals work best as per-workout meals and what to east post-workout, and outlining proper portion sizes and how much of each food type you should be eating and when.
-Bikini Body Supplement List
This guide book gives you a variety of supplements that actually help in building muscle and proper diet. There are a lot of supplements that you might not need, as your diet already compensates enough and the excess simply gets flushed out of your system and goes to waste. This guide plays off of the nutrition guide to help give you the most effective supplements for building muscle and burning fat, without wasting your time and money on supplements that will just end up going to waste.
-Bikini Body Comprehensive Shopping List
Just like any other diet or fitness program, going to the store without a plan can spell disaster. Not only can the cake and pastry aisle be oh so tempting, but also knowing what kinds of healthy foods to buy can be a challenge. Are certain cuts of beef healthier and more effective for muscle building than others? Should you buy light or dark turkey meat? Should I buy canned veggies or fresh produce? This guide will give you all the answers you need, guiding you to the healthiest and most beneficial food options to help fuel your workouts.
-Bikini Body 21-Day Booty Blast
This supplemental guide gives you a selection of 10-minute workouts focusing exclusively on your glutes. Your glutes is one of those trouble areas where fat can just set up camp and never want to leave. Adding these workouts into the mix will help burn that fat, tone that butt, and get your beach bod in tip top shape for summer.
Bikini Body Workouts is for anyone who is looking to get in shape for the summer and wants that perfect bikini body. Whether you’re a fitness guru just looking for that little something extra, or someone who doesn’t even know what a free wight is, let alone held one. The Bikini Body Workouts Program is for people of all skill levels who are just looking to get fit. The comprehensive guides and instructions are great for beginners, and have enough nuance and depth to keep people more familiar with exercise routines just as engaged.
What Are The Upsides?
There are a lot of benefits to the program. The biggest benefit of the program is just how easy it is to use. Between the videos and the guidebooks, it gives you all of the information you’ll need in bite-sized steps. While the workouts themselves can be a bit intense, especially the first time you start doing HIIT workouts, the program eases you into everything, and it never feels like you’ve just been thrown in the deep end with no guidance on if you’re doing things right.
The wide variety of supplementary materials and the fact the program easily integrates itself into your daily routine is also a great benefit. While it does focus on lifestyle changes, you don’t have to change your whole life around just to make the program work for you. The exercises are relatively short, so you can fit them in whenever works best for your daily routine, and the diet changes simply require you to change your shopping and eating habits, things you already do throughout your day to day.
The program is also completely online, which means you’ll have instant access after purchasing it. The digital format also means you’ll have access to it at home on your computer, but also on the go with your phone or tablet. This really comes in handy with the shopping list, as you can just pull it up on the fly if you ever need to reference anything or are at a loss for what foods you should buy.
Lastly, the program is really a steal when it comes to pricing. There are a lot of workout programs out there that are asking $50-$100 just for a full workout routine without all these supplemental guides and nutrition books, but the Bikini Body Workout Program is only $29.99. On top of that, it comes with a full 60-day money back guarantee. If you’re unhappy with the program for any reason within 60 days of purchase, you can get a full refund, no questions asked. Thanks to this guarantee, there’s virtually no risk to try this program for yourself.
Are There Downsides?
There are a few disadvantages with the program. First, it is an entirely digital format, so if you work better with printed materials, you’ll have to print everything out yourself. Also, if you have a poor internet connection or no connection at all, you won’t even be able to access the program properly. For those who are more experience with exercising, some of the routines may come off as a bit simple, but they are still effective. The program also requires consistency. If you don’t follow this program to the letter, you aren’t going to get the results you want. Lastly, you are going to need some exercise equipment to make this program work. Dumbbells and resistance bands at a minimum are required, and those are not included in the package so you’ll have to go out an purchase those separately.
All in all, the Bikini Body Workouts Program does work. It’s easy to follow, and since it focuses on building a lifestyle and a routine, you’ll eventually make the workout and dieting a part of your day to day life, ensuring that once you have that bikini body you’ll keep it. Even if you are a bit skeptical, it’s definitely worth at least trying. With the 60-day money back guarantee, there’s really nothing to lose. That’s not to say the program is going to be easy. Just with any workout plan, it is going to take hard work and dedication to pull off, but you’ll be happier for it once you start seeing those results. If you can discipline yourself and stick to a routine, and if you’re willing to adjust your diet accordingly, Bikini Body Workouts may be one of the best plans out there for building overall health, not just some killer abs.
